Local Maintenance & Improvement Grant (LMIG) ​

The LMIG program has been developed in cooperation with ACCG, GMA, and others. The annual LMIG allocation is based on the total centerline road miles for each local road system and the total population of each county or city as compared with the total statewide centerline road miles and total statewide population. The LMIG program will allow local governments greater flexibility and quicker project delivery while allowing us to effectively administer the program with a reduced workforce and new funding match requirements.

LMIG Application​​​​​​

The Department is excited to announce that the Governor and the Legislature included $250 million in Local Road Assistance Administration funds (LRA) in the amended fiscal year 2024 budget. The LRA funds will be administered and distributed using our GRANTS (LMIG) Application System. Eligible activities/projects for LRA funds will be the same as the LMIG program. LRA funds will require NO match. View FY 24 LRA Formula Amounts.

The Department will begin accepting applications for LRA funds on March 15, 2024. All electronic applications must be received no later than June 15, 2024. When you enter the LMIG Application System, the site provides a link to the LMIG Signature Page and the General Guidelines. Your project list will be entered directly into the LMIG Application System. Please contact your District State Aid Coordinator for assistance with the online application process.
